Announcement icon We have made available sessions via phone & video conferencing. Also we will continue in-office with safe, sanitary protocol visits.
With nearly 30 years of experience, I firmly believe that the client is the most powerful force in their own lives. With a confidential and accepting environment, I aspire to aid individuals on their journey of self-growth and always guide them in the direction of "True North". I desire to assist them in addressing the feelings and problems that often seem out of their control. I am also highly experienced in coaching couples and families to communicate with one another by addressing difficult issues, and help them reconnect in a healthy and more meaningful way.
As a Master Addiction Counselor and Certified Clinical Advanced Alcohol & Drug Counselor, I offer services to encourage sobriety. We will explore causes that impact addiction in a non-judgmental way. With compassion and a commitment, connect with me and I will challenge you, hold you accountable, and help restore relationships broken by addiction.
I believe that spirituality is essential to the healing process. As a former pastor, I offer Christian faith-based counseling to those interested. If you are looking for help navigating the storms in your life I always point to "True North" allowing the Lord to help in so many of our struggles.
